On Wednesday 8th of March, Careers Day took place. Visitors came in to share information and their experiences regarding their careers. Different careers were presented to us where we had the opportunity to learn and understand what was involved in each job.
We enjoyed this organised event as it enabled us to have a clearer view about our future plans. The careers in which we had the most interest in were Business, a forensic surgeon, the navy and a flight controller. We got to ask them lots of questions such as what qualifications and skills are needed, what a typical day involves and for any advice or recommendations.
Overall we found it very interesting. At first most of us were confused but this event opened doors to new careers we hadn´t thought about. Some of us even discovered new interests we didn´t know we had and it allowed us to consider a wider range of options.
We hope that this will be repeated next year and if it does we would like to have more time and meet other people with different careers. We would like to thank all the teachers for making this a successful Careers Day.
